Chalk and Cold Wax Painting Medium


Chalk added to Cold Wax

Chalk is available from a Chemist or online, probably choose 'fine grade' to start, in contrast, for more texture use crumbled blackboard chalk.
The SAA have a varied assortment of coloured chalks these are useful for colouring the wax, pastels, both 'dry' and 'wax' work like pigment to colour wax.

Adding coloured sand, glass pebbles or stones to the wax, will give texture, including, random and decorative patterns when applied to a surface. These decorative items need sealing to the surface with a thick layer of Cold Wax Painting Medium.

Add the chalk on or off the surface of the painting, meaning, form the shapes or decorations separate to the main surface.

Consistency of Cold Wax with chalk added.

Cold Wax Painting Medium is stiffened by adding chalk or pastel, because, it somewhat dries the wax causing much stiffer paste with more textured.

To add a chalk or pastel mixture to a painting, the suggestion would be to have the painting be on a rigid surface, furthermore, use a plastic spatula or similar to apply the mixture as the wax becomes harder to move and blend.

Test in a separate area, because the chalk could 'dry out' the wax/oil mixture and could cause it to crack.
